The Emperor of Any Place

Tim Wynne-Jones. Candlewick.

Gr 9 Up–Evan’s world comes crashing down when his father dies and his estranged grandfather moves in. But after discovering a manuscript filled with journal entries from a Japanese soldier and an American Marine stranded during World War II on an island in the Pacific inhabited by spirits, the teen uncovers secrets about his own family. An utterly absorbing tale that examines war, death, and grief in an entirely new light.
